Hayrides - A 30 minute wagon ride through a working apple orchard
followed by a fireside dinner where local musicians bring a taste of
the mountains and our local culture to your family. The dinner at
campfire consists of homemade chili, cornbread, soda, water, and
homemade dessert, as well as hot dogs and marshmallows for roasting.
After dinner, you can end the evening with a game of horseshoes next
to the fire. The entire evening usually lasts about 1 1/2 hours and
is held an hour before nightfall yearlong.
This activity is great for large groups who want to enjoy a campfire
dinner with entertainment. We need a minimum of 8 people to have a
hayride, but can always try to combine smaller families together to
reach the required minimum number. Please be sure to ask for
directions to the hayride when booking, as the hay ride is at
Mountain View Apple Orchard, not Blanche Manor. (706-455-7433)
Rates: $25 / adults, $15/children under 8, $5/children under 4
